    Hey Katie

    We got a price quote out of Calgary for May 09 of $1765 taxes included for 7 days is the basic room category. We put down $12,000. in deposits (We are expecting b/w 80-100 people) we realized that May is an off month and there are only so many flights(one a week) so if one wedding party of 50 or more book we are screwed. So we had my parents, his parents and some close friends prepay to hold deposits,then when people confirm, it all balances out. We have til November 19 , then if only like 60 confirm they get a credit on their account.
    It is really crazy, but this way I have no stress of getting people to book really early or of not enough room on the plane.

    Cheers,
    Heather

      Hi All!

      I just joined this site while doing research on the Azul Sensatori. It has been quite the ordeal digging up information on this place.

      Our wedding date is 11/14/2008, so we will be one of the first 10 weddings there. I am sure I will be able to answer a lot of questions for you all now and especially after the wedding.

      Are any of you working with Fabio yet?

        Hi Katie, I am from Toronto and also using The Wedding Holiday. We had to upgrade to honeymoon suite otherwise would have to pay 2500 for resort's wedding package. We just did a quick math and it will be an expensive wedding, especially if we have over 40 people, but hope it'll worth it. Your rate is locked in till Nov?
        Are you going to their Bridal Shower on Sept 13th?

        Cheers,
        Shannon

          Hi Shannon!

          Thanks for the info... what wedding shower? I know the company may do a FAM trip in Nov. to the resort but that's all I heard. They haven't quoted me the upgraded package yet, I only see it on the Hotel's website. Can I ask what you would be paying for just you and your FH to go and stay in that stunning room I so have my heart set on this hotel now and would be sad to have to look elsewhere. Also, Lorraine emailed me FROM there today and said that it's free if coming from U.S. as rates are 30% higher, but for Canadians no free wedding package as we have better rates apparently.

              Hi Everybody!

              I am leaning towards Azul Sensatori. I have loved reading the posts on this thread (it really is such valuable info) The FI and I are planning a trip to the area on Oct 1-5, 2008. I will come back with lots of pics and questions answered.

                  Hi Amy!
                  Welcome to the forum
                  We are happy that you found us! I'm curious, how is the planning going? What have you done so far? Do you know who the on-site coordinator is?
                  I haven't done any solid planning. I'm waiting for them to get a few weddings under their belt. I was just wondering how it is going with the resort not being open.

                    Hi Abby!
                    Wow, you will be the first person there!
                    Have you set an appointment with a wedding coordinator or are you going to ask when you get there?
                    Are you looking at any other resorts on your trip?

                      Hey Shannon and katie,
                      I'm going through the Wedding Holiday as well and I am going to the bridal shower on the 13th. Shannon, I'm confused as to why you had to upgrade to the honeymoon suite ....what did that have to do with the wedding package? My FH and I have just started this process...we are probably going to get married July 2010 so we have a while to go. I am also going to go on the trip in Nov to visit the resort.
